News, Racing I By Peter Nelson I July 31, 2019

This weekend, F1 heads to the Hungaroring for the Hungarian Grand Prix. Practice goes down on Friday, followed by more practice on Saturday, qualifying later on Saturday, and race on Sunday.

In NASCAR, Monster Energy and Xfinity Series turn their steering wheels both left and right for a weekend of action on the beautiful, flowing turns of Watkins Glen. Monster’s practice begins midday on Saturday, followed by qualifying that evening and the race on Sunday. Xfinity’s qualifying and race all happen on Saturday.

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship heads to Road America in America’s Dairyland. If you’re in attendance at the track, enjoy a cool New Glarus for us. Qualifying rolls out midday on Saturday, followed by the race on Sunday afternoon.

Finally, on Sunday evening, Blancpain GT World Challenge coverage in South Korea airs, and the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series ties a flannel around its waist for an evening of action in Seattle.
